Books and More Books

I have begun the process of getting the new poetry collection, THE TOWER, into distribution. If there are no snags, both print and ebook versions should be available pretty much everywhere by the official release date of November 1. If the print copies don't make it to vendors such as Amazon by that date, so be it; they WILL be available directly from Arachis Press.

There will probably be some sort of giveaway of the ebook toward the middle or end of this month. Not absolutely decided how to handle that yet, so stay tuned.

This will be the last new title for this year. Do expect a fantasy novel, VALLEY OF VISIONS to appear fairly early in 2016. This is the second book in my Malvern series and the sequel to COAST OF SPEARS. There should be a third and final Malvern novel eventually, tentatively titled HERO FROM THE SEA. Or maybe LAND OF HEROES or even something else; hey, it isn't even written yet!

In the meantime, I continue to revise older titles for general distribution. All my poetry books should be available by the end of the year, including the very first, PIECES OF THE MOON, which originally appeared in 2003. Of course, all of these have been available universally as ebooks, and directly from Arachis Press as print editions.

That will leave only the four Donzalo novels. I'll work on getting them redone for distribution next year. I did consider an all-in-one edition but it was just too long (over 700 pages unless I radically changed the formatting). So those should appear as I find the time to work on them. The one remaining book in my oeuvre would be the retrospective of my mother's art and life, but I can't see any point in putting it into distribution.

Now, I do hope to write more stuff. Or publish others' work, for that matter. I am definitely willing to add titles at Arachis Press that didn't come from my own pen, poetry in particular. Not that there is any profit for either party in the publishing of poetry
